The buttery smooth Jelly Bean is on the mind of many ICS users, but while we’re stuck on ICS, we might as well enjoy the Android 4.0 experience at its fullest, right? T-Mobile HTC One S owners are now spoiled with an update that will take their phones from Android 4.0.3 and HTC Sense 4.0 to Android 4.0.4 and Sense 4.1.
Following the firmware update that AT&T’s HTC One X received earlier in the month that cleans up the three-dot menu bar on the bottom of the screen, similar update is now coming to the HTC EVO 4G LTE on Sprint. The system enhancement update, as Sprint calls it, is 171.81MB in size, and it finally deals with the menu problem that has been plaguing the phone.
If you are looking to experience Sense 4.1, but you can’t wait for an official update, you can now try out the first custom ROM based on Sense 4.1, Android Revolution HD. ARHD brings little changes to the looks of Sense 4.1, but compensates in the under-the-hood department. Check it out after the break.
Never mind the upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, some owners of the HTC One X are actually still waiting for ICS 4.0.4 to come to their phones. AT&T rolled out the incremental ICS update for their variant of the HTC One X earlier in the month, and now it appears the new software is being pushed out to owners of the phone in Europe.
A freshly leaked ROM for the international variant of the HTC One X has made its way online, bringing some new surprises with it. Aside from version 4.0.4 of Ice Cream Sandwich, a relatively minor upgrade from ICS 4.0.3, the ROM also features the latest version of HTC Sense. Here’s what you can expect to see from Sense 4.1. According to folks who have braved the 2.15.401.5 test ROM, the new Sense 4.1 runs faster than 4.0 and all-around more responsive, possibly due to the removal of some eye-candy 3D effects in the launcher. A smoother experience, probably not yet…
